  1. Carol says:

    My grandmother Vitantonia Laneve was born
    in Alberobello in 1894. Her mother was
    Vitantonia D’Anglia and her father was
    Giuseffe. I was in Alberobello in September
    and wanted to know if my grandmother lived in a trulli. Is there any way to find out where she grew up?

    • Anthony says:

      My grandfather comes from Alberbello also. I have visited the addresses where my grandparents lived in the United States when they first came over: New York & Boston, but it would be really amazing to go to the Trulli Home (or whatever the case may be) in Alberobello.

  2. Marianne says:

    My husband and I plan to be in Alberobello 9/22-9/30/2017. I have researched the Trivisani family to the late 1600s from the US and would like to go further in the church records in Italy. We would also like to visit the family church, cemeteries and homes they may have lived in.

  3. Jacqueline says:

    I am trying to apply for dual citizenship and need my grandparents birth records. I have a copy of my grandfather’s according to the sample of the image you provided on your site, however I do not know if I can submit the copy or need an original. I also need my grandmother’s who I believe was born in Alberobello, but have not had luck finding a copy.
    I have names, parents names, birth date, what fees do you charge for help.
